As the Management Board of the Armwrestling Federation Poland we would like to express our deep regret about the situation that is taking place in our friends in Ukraine. This is a moment when the whole armwrestling community should unite in the name of the highest value, which is freedom and independence. ()
In our environment there are many wonderful people who are affected by the consequences of the invasion aimed at the Ukrainian nation. We wholeheartedly call for the cessation of Russian aggression and normalization of the situation with our friends from Ukraine.
Polish Armwrestling Federation, all of us, a lot of great people and enthusiasts of our sport should strive for a unified position supporting our friends from Ukraine. Everyone can add their contribution... Some with a good word, and others with direct actions.
We Poles have had a turbulent history with the Ukrainian people over the centuries. However, we should remember that the war which is taking place at our gates may soon have a global character. That is why it is so important not to close our eyes and hearts and to support as much as we can the nation that has been affected by such a huge tragedy.
As the FAP Board of Directors, we ask you to remember that this is one man's war of spheres of influence. We are receiving messages from our friends in Russia who strongly condemn the policy of their President and declare unity with the victims of the conflict. Unfortunately, the apparatus of power in Russia effectively blocks any expression of opposition to the government's policy. Let us remember about that while evaluating the situation.
